|Description:||If you are interested in the relationships between the environment and society and want to learn about landscapes and people, consider studying geography. Geography is about place and space. It studies the interdependence among regions, natural systems, physical features, society, and cultural activities. Using a “spatial” perspective, it aims to form a coherent understanding of Earth.
People with geography skills apply what they know successfully in a wide variety of fields. Our recent grads have embarked on careers in urban and regional land use planning, conservation and resource management, mapping, geographic information systems and remote sensing, parks and recreation, as well as teaching and research. Students have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience through a practicum course, with applied academic training in geography to a project on or off campus. Others work closely with faculty to pursue their interests in a specific field of geography in a Directed Studies or Undergraduate Thesis course.
